Benchmarks Phoronix, known for their various speed tests and reviews, compared the latest in Ubuntu and what, until recently, used to be the lastest in Mac OS X with 29 different benchmarking tests. Some of the results were rather interesting.

Valid point, yes, but having something cached isn't the same as having it loaded, running, and available to simply run a new window. Even comparing Gnome Terminal with the OSX version demonstrates that. In functional use, even with no terminal windows open I'll have the application running, and a new one is nearly instantaneous to load.

Of course, you could always use XFCE.
